It was probably in the 1990s when you first saw a digital camera (although the first digital camera was created in 1975 by Steven Sasson, an engineer at Eastman Kodak).  No longer would you have to wait for a roll of film to be developed in order to see the photograph just taken.  It was the beginning of the end of one-hour film developing. Kodak and many other film companies discontinued mass film production nearly a decade ago due to plummeting sales (although you can still buy cameras that use film) and with it, places where you can have that film developed. However if you happen to stumble across a roll of 35mm film, you can still have it developed. In fact, CVS, Walgreens and Walmart still offer the service.  But don't expect to get your prints back in an hour. It can take anywhere from three to 7 business days and can range from $8 to $16 dollars. Make sure the brick-and-mortar store you drop off your undeveloped film will return the negatives as some will not!  There is also online film developers too. Darkroom, Old School Photo Lab, Mpix and Process One are just a few developers and usually offer free shipping and your photos displayed online within a few days. Believe it or not, Kodak, Fujifilm and newer companies such as Lomography and Impossible Project (Polaroid Instant film cartridges) still make film but are generally reserved for online purchase.
